A challenge last month to the Mingus Union School District’s compliance with the Arizona Open Meeting Law resulted in a comedy of errors by the MUHS administration and legal counsel.
Credit Andy Groseta with one of the biggest political coups in Verde Valley history. Wednesday, Gov. Doug Ducey signed Senate Bill 1254 into law.
The May 4-5 performances of the play Fractured Fairy Tales were a success. Our kids did a great job, the audience wowed. Thank you to Pam Zahnzinger, the actors, and the parents who assisted.
I am disappointed with the outcomes from the May 8 Yavapai Community College District Governing Board meeting.
At municipal level, micro actions do lead to macro change
Complaining about our elected representatives may be a great American past time, but showing up takes work.
Ballots will be counted at the end of the day on May 15, 2018. This is a very important election that will affect the well-being of Yavapai County for years to come. I urge you to vote yes.
I love riding my bike. I learned to ride as a child as most of us do and then didn’t ride for many years as I grew into a young adult, married, had children and just got too busy.
I am cursed that I have a formal post-secondary degree in Economics, which makes the blessing of working in government, at times, a difficult paradox.
Beaver Creek School students have begun the state testing process.
After spending a few days at the State Capitol and a few days here in town marching for the future of Arizona education, I feel like I should weigh in.
We have a teacher shortage in Arizona, too. We are more than 8,000 teachers short, statewide, to start the school year next year.
This is a huge week for supporters of public education. As many of you know, our school districts are underfunded from the state level. Our community has taken on the slack passing override and bonds, but it’s time we demand the state fund public education and rural public education.
When people and companies that drive economic development are considering investing in Arizona, they want “water certainty” – that is, proof of long-term water supplies that are both physically and legally available.
As a former law enforcement officer, I locked up sexual predators and sex traffickers who preyed on children and young men and women.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey stepped up this week, or at least he likes to think he did. His proposal calls for 20 percent pay raises for teachers across the state, with the increases to be spread out over the next two years.
Commentary: Mingus not trying to hold secret meeting, but district’s understanding of Open Meeting Law sadly lacking
“The sequence of events that followed the revelation about the website noticing oversight played like something straight out of the playbook of “the dog ate my homework’”
Knowing about some of the work that is involved with successfully managing and facilitating the events for the Town of Camp Verde, I’m surprised that some events have not been cancelled sooner by the dedicated and over-worked volunteers that are responsible for Camp Verde Promotions.
The current formula is not working. The same volunteers are stepping up and carrying a disproportionate load at every community event. It’s become abusive. They’re long past the point of burnout.
So here’s my question: If you’re all about personal privacy, why are you on Facebook to begin with? Neither Cambridge Analytica nor any other internet marketing firm has any information about you that you didn’t give away.
If all goes as planned, there will be a new option in getting from Point A to Point B in the Verde Valley about 10 years from now.
Friday night, Jews will begin with the same question they ask every year: “When do we eat?”
Easter is the most revered day in Christianity. It is the observance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Yet it is unique among holidays in that it has no set date on the calendar, other than a guarantee it will fall on a Sunday.
A sincere thank you to the communities of McGuireville, Rimrock, Lake Montezuma and Camp Verde.
It would be an exaggeration to say I’ve been an NCAA basketball junkie all my life. My addiction got serious in junior high when my friends and I played pickup games every afternoon and followed the West Virginia Mountaineers on the radio from WWVA in Wheeling at night.
The conventional wisdom is that last week -- with a much-watched congressional special election, a shakeup in the diplomatic profile of the country, and internal White House debates about how and against whom to impose steel and aluminum tariffs -- answered several vital questions. In truth, the opposite may be the case.
